This week in games — it's been a while folks, but this one appears to be a humdinger or sorts. Of course, there'll be bigger weeks to come in the lead up to Christmas, but still. Good to see top games on shelves.
Ace Combat: Assault Horizon (360/PS3) What is it? What? Another Ace Combat... where did this come from? Should you care? I'm going to be completely honest and say this - no pun intended - was completely under my radar! I know very little about this game.
Dead Rising 2: Off The Record (360/PS3) What is it? Frank West is back and has his SLR slung over those broad, muscular shoulder of his. Should you care? This might feel a bit stop-gappy, but still — I missed the camera mechanic in Dead Rising 2.
Forza Motorsport 4 (360) What is it? Probably the most definitive racer on the market. Should you care? See above. Apparently it's a little bit spiffy.
Just Dance 3 (360/Wii) What is it? Dance juggernaut gets it's third effort. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Should you care? It's easy to dismiss this, but when I mentioned I'd seen this late last week at a Ubisoft event, the girls in the office went bananas. Ryan Gosling could've walked naked wearing a bow and they wouldn't have blinked an eyelid.
Marvel Super Hero Squad (DS) What is it? Sorry, what is this game? Man... Should you care? Man, I'm sorry. I don't know. At a guess? Probably not.
Might And Magic Heroes VI (PC) What is it? Turn based strategy effort gets another sequel. Should you care? Not my thing, really. But go nuts!
Pro Evolution Soccer 2012 (360/PS3) What is it? Former soccer king keeps on trucking. Should you care? I remember last year's installment really was a step in the right direction. But it's hard for me to look past FIFA nowadays.
Skylanders: Spyro's Adventure (360/PS3/PC/Wii/DS) What is it? Another entry into this top notch kid's series. Should you care? I've always thought the Spyro games were solid.
